Big Picture: Aid to Nationalist China
DVD copied by Katie Filbert. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). This is the story of the United States Army Military Assistance Advisory Group in Formosa. In a race against time and of constant threat of attack, officers and men of our Army are lending American knowledge and materials to the small fighting Army of Nationalist China which will not be bent to the doctrine of the Communist horde. BIG PICTURE cameras cover this front line of freedom from the busy City of Taipei, its capital, to a lonely beach where the changing of the guard has great meaning for the free nations of the world who stand committed to act against aggression. Viewers will watch the physical conditioning of free China's soldiers, a toughening process which never ceases on Formosa. Combat exercises are shown with commandos executing amphibious landings.
